Every two seasons, the Junior Ballett takes the stage with its very own evening of ballet. Impulse, their most recent evening, premiered in February of 2021 in Wintherthur. The Junior Ballett presented world premieres which they developed with three young choreographers: Craig Davidson, Bryan Arias and Juliano Nunes. With performances in October 2021, the Junior Ballett will celebrate its twentieth anniversary.

Craig Davidson, originally from Australia, has danced with the Royal Ballet of Flanders and the Semperoper Ballett in Dresden. He created his first pieces during his time in Belgium. He was a participant in development programs at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, and took part in the New York Choreographic Institute. His works have appeared at the Wester Australian Ballet, the Queensland Ballet, the Atlanta Ballet, and the Zürcher Hochschule der Künste.

Bryan Arias is from Puerto Rico and grew up in New York. He has danced with the Nederlands Dans Theater and in Crystal Pite’s company «Kidd Pivot». He has created works for the company there as the winner of the choreography competition in Copenhagen, and his pieces have also been performed by the NDT 2, the Scottish Ballet, the Hessische Staatsballett, and the Ballett Theater Basel. He founded his own company in New York in 2013, and is known for his poetically quiet, minimalist pieces.

Juliano Nunes was born in Rio de Janiero. After completing his training at the Akademie des Tanzes in Mannheim, he appeared at the Badisches Stattsballet Karlsruhe, with Gauthier Dance in Stuttgart, with the Leipzig Ballet, and with the Royal Ballet of Flanders. He has worked as a choreographer with the Royal Ballet of Flanders, the National Ballet of Canada, the Pennsylvania Ballet, and with the NDT 2.
